Any Table Any Room

Jonathan Burrows/Matteo Fargion

Duration: 60’
Italian Premiere
Limited availability

Choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion present Any Table Any Room, inviting four Milan-based artists to join them on stage after a three-day rehearsal period. Burrows and Fargion work together to reimagine the relationship between dance, music and performance. Building on their collaborative practice of 30 years and on the series of duets they have conceived and performed together since 2002, they bring to the theater of Triennale their first group piece, a project which is recreated at each occurrence with local artists, drawing upon the collective energies and generosity of the contemporary dance world. How possible is community? How do we retain our autonomy when in a group? Using 36 clay objects made by the performers, gestures, song, drones and harmonicas, the piece is a gregarious exploration of the pleasures and demands of working together.  

Choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion have collaborated for 30 years on a series of overlapping performance works that redefine the relationship between dance, music and performance art, bringing them a worldwide following. They are co-produced by Sadler’s Wells London, PACT Zollverein Essen, BIT Teatergarasjen Bergen and Kaaitheater Brussels. Recent works include: the 52 Portraits year-long online piece; Any Table Any Room, inviting diverse artists to join them on stage in each new city; Music For Lectures, with artists’ lectures backed by a rock band; Hysterical Furniture, a four hour salon event for Bologna and Hannover, and solo pieces Rewriting by Burrows and The Solo Piece by Fargion. Burrows’ A Choreographer’s Handbook (2010) has sold 14,000 copies internationally; he is currently a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Dance Research, Coventry University. Fargion recently wrote music and performed in other major projects including Oslo and the Kunstenfestivaldesarts commission Penelope Sleeps by Mette Edvardsen, Flowers (We Are) by Claire Croizé, and We have to dress gorgeously by Andrea Spreafico.
